Staying true to our roots

At SNCF, social engagement is an integral part of our strategy and our purpose. By working closely with stakeholders and staying true to our roots, we’re creating convenient, green, responsible mobility that serves everyone.

Our purpose is...

...bringing the freedom...

Giving you more freedom means making transport more accessible. We’re working to offer more mobility solutions wherever we do business­—and not just trains, but buses, ride-sharing, bicycles and electric scooters. 

... of effortless mobility...

Which means keeping you informed, in real time, of all the mobility solutions available to you, and delivering door-to-door transport with all the service and comfort you expect.   

... and a greener planet to all

So you always have access to the greenest mobility solution. And we’re fighting social and geographic inequality by making our mobility offer affordable for everyone, whatever their budget.

Taking action now

We’re determined to do what it takes to deliver on our purpose. Finding new ways of doing things, adapting, pushing past our limits. Harnessing the power of digital tools, new technologies and innovation. And above all, tapping into the skills and expertise of our own people as we transform every area of our business.
